I am loving this fabulous external hard drive!
This powerful little beast has a 320 GB capacity. The 7200 RPM drive is very fast.
The first thing you’ll notice is the slim and sleek design. It’s about the width of a #2 pencil. It doesn’t take up much space at home and is easy to tote with me.
The drive will work with both PC and Mac. You can even go back and forth between PC and Mac with the same data!
I am not a tech expert, but set up was easy with my Mac. I just plugged it into my USB port, registered it and followed their prompts. I then quickly set it up to work with Time Machine. I believe you PC people will be good to go by just following their prompts.
The first backup took a little while. I forgot to look at the clock, but am guessing it was about 15-20 minutes. Now that I’ve done the big one, updates are really speedy. If I leave it plugged in, I’ve got it set up to automatically backup every 60 minutes. Otherwise, I can plug it in as needed.
320 GB is huge – really huge. I’m only using a fraction of it. The GoFlex will allow me to go back to the most recent saved version. Or I will be able to go back to a version from earlier in the day or one from a week or months before. As the drive gets filled up, the oldest versions will be deleted. It’s going to take me a long time to get to that point.
The GoFlex Hard Drive is an easy way to make sure all your important photos, documents, files and other data are protected. It’s also great for transferring or transporting your data.
